The province is providing some cash for those who lost food from Fiona.

There are still two weeks left to apply to the Fiona Food Cost Reimbursement Program which provides $100 for every household that lost power for at least 48 hours after Fiona.

It is to help cover the cost of spoiled food.

“We are pleased so many Nova Scotians applied for the financial support we are offering,” said John Lohr, Minister responsible for the Emergency Management Office. “I encourage anyone eligible to receive the food cost reimbursement to apply before the program closes. There are still a number of programs open, including those for people seeking help with tree removal, so if you haven’t applied, now is the time.”

Applications are still being processed for the Food Cost Program, so expect to hear back within four to six weeks after applying.

More than 4,000 people have benefitted from the Fiona Tree Removal Reimbursement Program, which helps to cover costs up to $250. Both programs have provided more than $11.8 million to Nova Scotians so far, who have needed help.

The last day to apply online to the Fiona Food Cost Reimbursement Program is December 16. Applications are at https://novascotia.ca/hurricane-fiona-support/
